Mamma Mia!

Here we go again - the Medicine Hat Musical Theatre is bringing the classic story of Mamma Mia to the stage. Mamma Mia “tells the story of a mother, a daughter, three possible dads and an unforgettable trip down the aisle” but it’s most well known for its joyous soundtrack of ABBA hits such as “Dancing Queen” and “Take a Chance on Me.” Do not miss an opportunity to see this story live from February 15 to March 2, 2019. Tickets can purchased for either of the 10 performances on the Medicine Hat Musical Theatre website, so go before it sells out!
